What is the betting that it will be at Goodwood Festival of Speed in two weeks time? Several options, no increase in performance and a big price hike? Come on BMW. Alcantara steering wheel, its not got the chuckability of a CSL has it?

There's already a thread about these cars buried on the forum. Not terribly impressive imo.

so a M5 M Performance edition...might as well just call it M&Ms

From what I understand, it is purely cosmetic features, and nothing in additional performance or handling. So I think the name is misleading.

I read somewhere, that the slogan "M" the most powerful letter in the world should be changed to "M" the most marketed letter in the world

So, in other words, there's really nothing "performance" about it.
